Detective Lindsay Boxer's investigation into the disappearance of three teachers escalates from missing persons to murder in this "shocking" Women's Murder Club thriller (Lisa Gardner, #1 NYT bestselling author). For a trio of colleagues, an innocent night out after class ends in a deadly torture session. They vanish without a clue -- until a body turns up. With the safety of San Francisco's entire school system at stake, Lindsay has never been under more pressure. As the chief of police and the press clamor for an arrest in the "school night" case, Lindsay turns to her best friend, investigative journalist Cindy Thomas. Together, Lindsay and Cindy take a new approach to the case, and unexpected facts about the victims leave them stunned. While Lindsay is engrossed in her investigation, her husband Joe meets an Eastern European woman who claims to have seen a notorious war criminal -- long presumed dead -- from her home country. Before Lindsay can verify the woman's statement, Joe's mystery informant joins the ranks of the missing women. Lindsay, Joe, and the entire Women's Murder Club must pull together to protect their city and one another -- not from a ghost, but from a true monster.… (more)

Quick read, great on airplane. Pretty predictable but keep my interest. ( )

Lindsay Boxer and her partner Conklin are called to help find three female teachers from a prestigious private school, who have disappeared after a night of drinking together. When one of the three is found hanged in a rent-by-the-hour hotel in the Tenderloin, it turns out not to be her first time there; however, despite Herculean efforts, the SFPD and Women's Murder Club is stymied. Meanwhile, Joe Molinari takes pity on a woman named Anna, who is convinced, she has spotted the Serbian war criminal, Slobodan Petrović (a/k/a the Butcher of Djoba), living large under a new identity in San Francisco. Convicted in the Hague, Petrović managed to negotiate some type of pardon, but was presumed drowned. He taunts both the FBI and SFPD, with the U.S. presumption of innocence. When the second teacher is found dead, hanging in a forest, also with odd injuries from a shuriken, which tie back to a known skill of Petrović. Medical examiner Claire makes important contributions, but then Anna is kidnapped. The cases ended too easily and conveniently, at least for my liking. ( )

A Bosnian War criminal is found living in California, and it doesn't look like he's turned over a new leaf. But how to prove it? ( )

A typical quick read Woman’s Murder Club book. Perfect for while on a plane. A little less of the core character development and interaction. In its place was a bit of the atrocities committed in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s. This was deftly woven into the story.

These books are not the type whose plot lines I remember two weeks after the book is finished but they are consistently page turners . ( )

Written differently than the other Woman’s Murder Club books, this one takes us back 5 years for Lindsey and Joe’s current investigation.
I found it a bit hard to follow at first due to missing characters and relationships not where they had been.
A decent plot, but just not sure why it was moved back 5 years earlier, since there has been no mention previously of this case.
